About this Item

Ex-library. 4to. 129,118pp. Original silver wrappers with black lettering on cover and spine. Yiddish and English title-pages, both of them inscribed in Yiddish and English by the screenwriter to the Jewish Community Library Los Angeles. "To the Jewish Community Library in Los Angeles from Sam Batt. 05-16-99." Shmuel Leib Batt (1919-2000) was born in Shmusk (now Ukraine). Early in his youth Shmuel discovered his talent and love for writing. After the Nazi invasion in eastern Europe in the early 1940's, Shmuel fled to Russia where eventually he joined the Red Army to fight against Hitler's Wehrmacht. After returning home after WW II, he discovered that his entire family has been exterminated in the Holocaust. In the 1970's Shmuel and his wife Riva immigrated to the United States where he resumed his writing. Most of his works, such as this screenplay, are based on real events (often experienced by himself) dealing with the suffering the Nazis inflicted on the Jewish people. In this work, Batt states the following about his screenplay: "The images of Wanda and other Jewish rebel-fighters are based on real people. The commanding German officers, their names and positions are real. The scenes of the battles have been recreated by the author based to the descriptions given in the books of Dr. B. Mark: 1. "Ruins Are Talking" (in Yiddish), Dos Naye Lebn, Lodz, 1947. 2. "The Uprising In The Ghetto Of Warsaw" (in Yiddish and in Polish), Yiddish Buch, Warsaw, 1963. In preparing the uprising the rebels constructed a sophisticated communications network extending through the attics and basements of the empty and ruined houses of the Ghetto. This enabled them to change their positions frequently, and prolonged their resistance despite the dreadful shortage of weapons and ammunition. The commander of the uprising Mordekhay Anielevich does not appear in this play." In Yiddish and English. Barcode sticker on front cover, library inventory sticker taped on tail of spine. Library card pocket on inside of rear board. Some creasing on edges of wraps. Scuffing and minor staining on wraps. Otherwise tight copy with wraps in good, interior in very good condition. Unique inscribed copy. Bookseller Inventory # 24189
